On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, Lanvin presented its Spring/Summer 2019 menswear presentation in the Palais de Tokyo amidst smoke screens and concrete, where the French label’s latest collection found itself in an ethereal space between elegance and utilitarianism.

This season, Lucas Ossendrijver joined in on the conversation regarding luxury menswear and its supposed tug-of-war between formalwear and streetwear. “It’s not about streetwear or not streetwear,” said Ossendrijver. “To me it’s about finding a new kind of elegance, a new kind of sophistication, and a new kind of language.”

The keyword to Lanvin’s new sartorial language was “opposites.” Contrasting elements like “night and day, soft and hard, and flat and 3D” were united and executed with the label’s signature attention to craftsmanship and pared back minimalism. A strong workwear theme — displayed by the cargo pockets, fisherman utility vests, reversible mackintosh coats, technical fabrics and trail-inspired sneakers — was layered with traditional menswear codes, which saw suit jackets, vests and button-downs treated with more lax tailoring and asymmetric cuts.
